Lorenzo flying high at Valencia

Jorge Lorenzo followed up the announcement last night that he will be leaving Derbi to join Honda in the 250cc class next season with provisional pole position for the 125cc race at Valencia. Lorenzo won an exciting battle for top spot with fellow Spaniard Sergio Gadea, who set the fastest time in the morning free practice before mounting a strong pole challenge in the afternoon.

Whilst World Champion Andrea Dovizioso broke up local hegemony on the front row in third place, Pablo Nieto and Hector Barberá made it four Spaniards in the top five with fourth and fifth place respectively. Gabor Talmacsi qualified sixth fastest to join Barberá on the second row ahead of last year's winner Casey Stoner and Lukas Pesek.
